nfs mount semantic


There are 3 machines: A, B, and C.

A export /home/A as a nfs entry.

B export /home/B as a nfs entry.
B "mount A:/home/A /home/B/A"

C "mount B:/home/B /home/C"

Is it possible that /home/C/A refers to contents on machine A?
I've tried, but /home/C/A refers to contents on machine B.

BR, neversetsun

so far as I understand it, you cannot have this sort of 'NFS spaghetti' with NFSv4. That is probably your problem. Why not just mount A directly from C? Or use another directory in B?
